arizona that arizona could gain 20,000 jobs and $1 billion in revenue, states like florida could gain $100 million in revenue because of monies they don't have to put into their own health care system and increased economic activity this would bring to the state, this is absurd and irrational position. there's only one reason republican governors are doing this. it is because they don't want to be primaried. this goes to the central issue for republicans. are they going to tell the crazy in the primary, the extreme right that have created a minority status for this party, that the positions they want the party to hold are ungovernable, they cannot win elections? are they going to stand up to them the way they didn't stand up to rush limbaugh, the way they didn't stand up to donald trump, stay rational positions or let the inmates be in charge of the asylum -- >> hoeld on -- >> hold on -- >> i'll let you respond in a moment. the other point i want to make is also in the days since the election we've been hearing about wanting to be the kindler, gentler republican party and say we care about
